by e-mail, it is completely wrong. the u.s. postal service is not the victim of e-mail and text messages. it is the victim of alec and the koch brothers. why, you ask? quite simple, really. the usps is the number one employer of unionized labor in the united states and provides an affordable universal service that a private company could and would charge us all much, much more for. two huge no-nos for the right wing. the reason the right wing crafted the legislation to destroy the postal service. we're joined now by nationally and internationally syndicated radio host the brilliant thom hartmann who wrote an incredible piece about this very subject for truth out.org called the usps media hashtag fail. >> great to be with you. >> john: please complain what the postal accountability enhancement act is and what its effects have been. >> well, you know, there were some reasonable and some good changes in that act which is -- as far as i can tell, how it got out of the house government oversight committee henry waxman and other democrats basically signing of on it. it was passed by a

for secretary of state, u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice. that's what is written there. for the president, is this about taking care of an old friend or trying to make up for rice? >> actually, i think it's about choosing what he believes is the best person for the job and sticking by him, which i think is admirable. look, the reality here is this is about politics. this is not about benghazi. if it was about benghazi, you could have held up john kerry. they didn't. this is something that exists between republicans and senator hagel because he dared questioned them about the iraq war. so that i think is the are reality that we're facing. i think the problem with the republicans is, be how much longer can they continue to play these games on these issues and think it's not going to hurt them? in fact, it already has. they are becoming a caricature of a political party because when you admit to the american people it's not about substance, it's about a 7-year-old issue that you have a problem with, a personal issue, that doesn't necessarily create a lot of confidence that your criticisms ar
mondale, democrat of minnesota. mr. mondale entered the u.s. senate at the beginning of our national war on poverty under lbj. senator mondale outlasted president johnson in office, but he kept working on that basic idea, of using public policy to help out the least well off among us. by 1971 he succeeded in getting passed with big bipartisan support a bill that would have created a daycare system essentially in this country. universal preschool for american kids. the tuition was on a sliding scale so everybody could afford it. senator mondale got his bill passed and it went to the guy who was president by then. it went to richard nixon. and richard nixon vetoed it even though it passed with lots of republican votes. president nixon said the idea of preschool for everyone had quote, family-weakening implications. he said quote, the child development envisioned in this legislation would be truly a long leap into the dark for the united states government and the american people. a long leap into the dark. 40 years after president nixon said no to preschool for all american kids with the we

subcommittee hearing friday morning. members will examine the challenges facing operations in u.s. airspace. officials from the faa and nasa are expected to testify. live coverage 10 a.m. eastern on our companion network c-span3. >> thursday at a senate banking hearing committee on dodd-frank financial regulations senator elizabeth warren of massachusetts, thomas curry, about prosecuting big banks when they break the law. here's a portion of the event. >> thank you very much, mr. chairman. thank you, ranking member. it's good to be here. thank you all for editing. i sat what he said. it's harder than look so i appreciate your being you. i want to ask a question about supervising banks when they break the law. including the mortgage foreclosure of others as well. we all understand why settlements are important, that trials are expensive and we can't dedicate huge resources to them. but we also understand that it's a party is unwilling to go to trial, either because it's too timid are because they lack resources, that the consequence is that a lot less leverage in all the settlements that occ

a little research. you look at u.s. military spending from 1988 to 2011, and it has gone up in a big way. you look at the percentage of the u.s. military spending compared to the rest of the world. it is, you know, in the last 20 years, we've seen record spending on defense. now, that is due in some part to the fact that we had a war in iraq. we have ongoing military engagement in afghanistan. that costs money, but where do you think democrats need to be. >> on this issue of sequester? >> where democrats have to be is in intelligent reduction in defense spending. the sequester is not intelligent reduction. one of the benefits, i think, of chuck hagel as secretary of defense is he does know and i think will have the willingness to go in there and find the places that are real fat. find the weapons systems that don't work. find the pad in the things, find the excessive spending on things that we don't need, and cut those rather than cutting troop deployments or things like that. >> i think that argument is valid up to a point. the same thing you can say about domestic spending. there's a c

: it appears the questions on brennan go directly to the u.s. policy on drones. we had rand paul on yesterday, the senator from kentucky. he is adamant that he will not allow brennan to go forward unless he answers a simple question. and that is, whether or not it is u.s. policy and u.s. law to use a drone over american skies and target americans here at home. what is your view on that? >> well, bottom line, i think senator paul has every right to have his questions answered. you're putting someone in a position in the cia that obviously is going to be making decisions that affect everyday americans not only here but abroad. he has that right to have those questions answered. we need to have a full disclosure from the administration as to what the policy is going to be. listen, i don't have a problem when somebody leaves their citizenship at the door and they're overseas and they have taken up arms against the united states of america. and they clearly are trying to hurt americans not only here but abroad, to use drones. i've been public on that already. the question comes what about here in
will lead the investigation and write the report into what exactly went wrong on this trip, but u.s. authorities are assisting in that report. you can be sure there will be many rules and regulations passed to try to prevent this from happening again. i'm chris pollone. i send it back to you. >> what a mess. i'm sure those people were so glad to get off the ship. >>> our weather has been beautiful, but it's getting cooler. >> we're going downhill very, very fast. i high near 60, it was gorgeous today. a lot of people enjoying it. some of you had the tops down on the cars? >> no. i saw you come in. out there right nour, the temperatures are coming down quick. we had a bit of rain come through earlier. now we're seeing some clearing skies, as the first wave moves on through. we have a lot more where that came from. take a look at the rain right now. the first bout that did drop those temperatures is now up towards the baltimore area. most of us just saw some light rain associatewood that. we also saw some wind. that is when we saw the cooler numbers, too. temperature is falling as rai
the number of blacks under 22 killed by guns was more than triple the number of u.s. soldiers killed in afghanistan. the number of plaque children killed by gunfire since 1979 is over 13 times more than the number of blacks lynched between 1882 and 1968. and since 1969 homicides involving firearms have been the leading cause of death for black males age 15 to 19. that is the leading cause of hopelessness and nihilism and morbidity we see in our young black men who feel themselves one step away from the grave every day. perhaps more tragically, most homicides are intraracial. the vast majority of killers of blacks are blacks. we're killing each other every day. no community is more in deed of gun control, is more in need of rescue from america's gun epidemic than black people, and we know it. we're extremely in favor of gun control. a recent pew poll found blacks far more pro-gun control than white. just after newtown, 68% of blacks said gun control was more important than gun rights while over 50% of whites said gun rights were still more important. 53% of blacks think gun ownership
